Get your own back

...was a children's tv show in the UK back in the 90s to early 00s. The premise of the show was a kid would write in with a lighthearted problem they were having with an adult (usually a teacher or maybe one of their parents) and they would then have the chance to compete against them in the hope of getting them slimed.

ANYWAY, the reason I was thinking about this was because yesterday I had to interview a senior guy in the business on the phone for a marketing campaign we're doing. The guy was really rude to me for no reason and every question I posed got a sarcastic response. I was really shocked and angry how he spoke to me and my hand couldn't stop shaking for hours after. His colleague (who was also on the call) rang me up to apologise on his behalf, saying he's like that with everyone, even her, and they've worked together for 16 years! This really rattled me and got me thinking about how I could get even with this tosser. I would love to send him anonymous letters in the internal post (or shit in a box) but they'd blatantly find out it was me and I'm way too much of a scaredy cat to risk my job.

So, how have you guys got even with someone in the past?
